These photographs were taken across Ukraine between 2015 and 2020, during spring and summer. They form a collective portrait of Ukrainian youth, and were taken on the way to the sea, along the banks of the Dnipro River to the beaches of the Black Sea; and further, on to the Arabat Spit, a mineral hot spring in a small village near the Sea of Azov called “Shchaslyvtseve”, which means “happy” in Ukrainian.
